poop always makes me bleed
Lately, my poops have been much more painful than usual. I say usual because I've never had comfortable poops. They're usually hard and hard to get rid of. Additionally, I only go once every few days, if I'm lucky. But, even then, I have to force it out sometimes.
I don't have a hemorroid, nor am I constipated, but the past few poops have made my anus bleed. The bleeding doesn't last long, but it still bothers me since it is painful.
Thanks for the question.
If you are only "going" every few days, poop is hard, you have to force it out, and sometimes your anus BLEEDS, then for GODS SAKE, you ARE constipated!!!!
Don't dispair, here's what to do to fix the situation:
- Drink at least 60 ounces of water a day.
- Eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day
- Wouldn't hurt to throw some Metamucil at your colon while you're at it.
If you are continuing to bleed after things normalize, see your doctor.
Please be advised that I am only a Poonurse. I am NOT a medical doctor. Any advice I give should be taken moderate skepticism. Please consult a REAL medical doctor if you feel you have a serious medical condition.
Poonurse is an RN with 25 years experience in labor and delivery. Her qualifications include seeing a lot of poop, and owning a computer. Also, she works in Michigan, which she calls the asshole of the universe, so that's another bit of credibility.
Got a question for her?
